    I have a Ford 2007 Expedition that has a Aux jack for a music player.

    Is there a cable that goes from the headphone jack to the ford jack?

    I want to be able to use the charger that plugs in the bottom connector.

    Does Apple have one? It's not listed in there web page.

    Please advise---Bob

    i'm no ford expert, but i'd say just go to radioshack (or similar) and ask for a 1/8th to 1/8th cable. that'll do the trick.

    What about the fact that the iPhone has a 4 element plug and most are 3.

    Will I hurt something?

    BTW Thanks for the fastest reply I've ever seen.

    nah, the normal plugs don't hurt the iphone jack. you may have to look into an adapter for the iphone recessed jack though.

    Will that adapter they sell do that? Then just buy matching plugs?

    Once again thanks a bunch.

    As you can see I'm up late fot the east, but then again so are you.

    Thanks ahand

    I went to the apple store today because (even though I bought it 27 July) I used the headphones for the 1st time.

    When you wiggled the cord they went from stereo to mono.

    I went in without my receipt but since the phone has been out for less than a year was hoping not to be challenged.

    The guy at the Genius bar listened --said I was right-- opened up a new package of headphones and handed them to me.
    That was it.

    It made me forget to ask them I was so taken off course. I thought they would hassle me--but no.

    He made my day. I loved the service.

    You don't need an adapter... just buy the Monster or Belkin 1/8" miniplug to miniplug cord. Both are available at Apple Stores. Plug one end into iPhone, the other into the Aux jack (I have one in my Civic hybrid).

    Thanks, I should have asked while I was there.

    I'll get back there next Tues.
